The old white bath tile is 11 cm
( slightly larger than 4 1/4")
I want to replace a few
I can't find it anywhere. And the larger ones from Dal tile are not a perfect color match...
Please help me find this..

We have ugly 1980s style trim and floor pattern we want to cut out and no, redoing the whole room isn't more cost
Effective in this case.

Finding older tiles and expecting a match is not realistic. That's why you're supposed to order and keep spares. Even the same batch from years ago would not match the in-service tiles. They do change a little.

Your tile are 4 3/8", about 1/8" larger than most. There were several brands that once made the larger size. You should find Florida Tile brand and see if the white comes close enough. There are many dozens of shades of white possible, and they may only make one.

As you're discovering, finding a perfect match to a vintage tile is like searching for a needle in a haystack.

You might have to settle for something that would complement it.

Try Googling "vintage tile" if you haven't already. There are places that will manufacture matching tile but they ain't cheap.

Probably not going to happen.
If you were to find the identical color and the size you need you will be the luckiest person in the world.:) You should then go to Las Vegas and spend every dollar you have on a single spin of the roulette wheel.:yes:
